It is mentioned in Hadith that the Prophet (صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم) walked barefoot as well as in shoes. The Prophet (صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم) used to sometime ask his companions to walk barefoot:

قال: کان رسول اللہ صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم یأمرنا أن نحتفي أحیاناً (مشکاۃ 382(

But, I could not find anywhere how the Prophet (صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم) used to walk in his house. The common words of Hadith suggest that he might be walking in house in both the ways:

کما في مسند الإمام أحمد في قصۃ طویلۃ: مشی حافیاً وناعلاً (مسند الإمام أحمد 7:127(
